Police search for driver in hit-and-run crash on Hwy 17

Posted: Updated:

A search continues for the driver that struck a pedestrian Tuesday night on Highway 17. 

It happened around 10:40 p.m. Garden City Police say a female victim was taken to Memorial in serious condition after another woman described as a heavy-set, black female driving a grey or silver four-door sedan, hit her with her vehicle on Hwy 17/Ogeechee Road at Barbour Drive and fled the scene. 

"This is a very dangerous stretch of road. We have very serious and often fatal accidents on this stretch of road. It's not very well lit and we advice all pedestrians to always use a crosswalk," said Lt. Tim McMillan, Garden City Police Department. 

Garden City Police had to close down the highway for hours to investigate the crash, but the road has since reopened.

If you have any information or witnessed the accident, call police or CrimeStoppers at 912.234.2020.
